Lima, Peru


7 hours 30 minutesMobile & paper tickets accepted

Want a truly alternative, authentic and local experience in Lima? Want to get to know the city beyond the tourist attractions? Then this educational and cultural immersion experience is what you're looking for! You'll get to see some unique places and meet some amazing locals in areas that most tourists don't get to see. In addition, your visit supports the local project that you will visit and learn more about.

The highlight is the visit to one of Lima’s human settlements, where you visit a local artisan, a social project, have lunch at a local family’s house and learn about daily life in this harsh environment. You will not only learn interesting historic, political and cultural facts but most importantly, your day will be filled with responsible and meaningful encounters with locals who work very hard to improve their community. The general focus of the tour is positive initiatives and hope.
